BTW - I don't use superzoom cameras, but even with my mirrorless and big reach lenses, I sometimes only catch a distant or fleeting glimpse of something - even though I'm more of a bird...

I know a few people with previous generation, the Nikon P900. Two of those are DSLR/MILC bird/wildlife shooters who keep the P900 around as a second body in a small bag...and use it not so much for...

Playing catch-up on photos from the past few weeks of weekly photo threads - this weekend I finally downloaded and sorted through shots from two prior weekends, the 23rd and 30th of June. Both...

Well I've just been getting caught up on photos from the last few weeks, so I'm a bit behind on the weekly thread. Finally got around to some wildlife shooting I did on the weekend of the 23rd,...

I find photography enthusiasts usually get significantly more enjoyment out of, and appreciation of, a place they are visiting, than 'normal people'. While the average person is holding up their...

I'm a little more cautious with having batteries on hand, even though I rarely need more than two on any given day, I usually have 4 charged and with me, just in case. That's with super-heavy...

Monday of this photo week, I was on my last day of my Disney World summer vacation - it was raining off and on a lot during the day, and I was at Epcot that day...so most of my shots were taken...

Remember if looking at and considering the 'mirrorless' camera options that they come in different sensor sizes just like DSLRs - actually even moreso. There are the Micro 4:3 sensors that are a bit...

I too can't say I've ever had any issue pop up - I did one time see the overheating warning come up on my older A6000, shooting out in the Everglades on a 100 degree day in direct sun for hours with...

As Dave mentioned though, all of that is just personal opinion/preference...it's not anything that proves one camera to be 'better' than the other, only FOR YOU. For me, I hate touch screens...

Uh oh Karen - maybe you two SHOULD park next to each other, especially in a big parking lot. Wouldn't you hate if you were at Disney World, and saw your little burst of orange off in the distance,...

Yep! That's part of her motivation - not necessarily being able to find it, but just it standing out among a sea of like colored greyscale cars. She had been mentioning every time I talked with her...

I don't have any 'scenic' type shots of landscapes, wildlife, or travels for this week...but I did take photos Monday. All I have are some shots I took for my mother of the new car I helped her buy...

I honestly don't shoot video so I don't have experience with any of the external stabilizers...however I'd like to praise you and give you all the kudos available for looking to purchase one. If...

I have one Wasabi battery, which someone gave me and is an emergency emergency backup - and I have 4 total Sony batteries including the one that came with my A6300, plus the ones that came with my...

Gorgeous birds and flowers - and very cool bee in flight work this week...and focus looks pretty dark spot on there Dave!

As usual, late to the weekly thread since it always ENDS with a weekend,...

Great diversity and selection so far - street shots, urban shots and stories, spring blooms, and birds! Since I usually don't get around to uploading my weekend shots until later that week, I'm...

I'll still be a little disappointed if it doesn't do my laundry...but then that's what the A6800 will be worth upgrading for!

Can't wait for that A6700. A9's EVF with no blackout and real-time view, larger FZ battery, 20fps with tracking on 600 focus points, 3 jog dials, dual card slots, back-illuminated 34MP APS-C sensor...

Finally got to my weekend shots from Saturday in the wetlands. It's getting hot and summery around here - the last waves of migrating birds was passing through and the summer birds are starting to...

As a frequent and heavy bird-in-flight photographer, I certainly will push the limits of a viewfinder's ability to refresh fast enough for tracking some very erratic and fast subjects...those in the...

My first was in 1977 - a Pentax ME-Super. I had been shooting with a Kodak Instamatic and B&W film since I was 6 years old, when my dad gave me his in 1974 - my very first shot ever taken was...

The rule is based on 35mm equivalent framing - so when applying the rule with an APS-C camera, I'd use the equivalent focal length.
As others mentioned, this 'rule' is a guideline only, so all will...

I still like and appreciate the reviews, especially the thorough ones, even if the final tally, list of positives and negatives, and overall score might not come out as good. Because I generally...
